We are so excited to be back at Ogilvie Transportation Center! The Chicago French Market is always a great experience for us. Getting our shop back up was no easy feat though! We had a lot of work to do and a very short amount of time to do it! Ever wonder how we build our shop at Ogilvie? Here is how we did it less than two weeks!
It was a lot of work! However we are so happy with the result! Have you had the chance to stop by yet? We are open until December 22nd so make sure you come by and check out the latest styles from your favorite local fashion boutique!
We have had the opportunity to style you and get to know you... Here's a chance for you to get to know a little bit about the familiar faces you see at our shops!

Last Friday was our first time taking the truck out in 2017! We were at Daley Plaza for the Chicago Food Truck Fest from 11:00-2:00, but the day started EARLY for us. Here are just a few pictures from the day. We can't wait to take the truck out again! Check out "Locations" to see just a few places you can find the truck this summer. And check back often, we are always adding new dates!
